about the fight over obama care. in the "wall street journal," obama retreats. and in "usa today," health law shakes the presidency. with democrats threatening to vote the white house rolled out a plan yesterday that allows millions of people to keep their insurance plans that would otherwise have been cancelled under the new terms of the affordable care act. it's meant to head off a vote in the house today on republican legislation that permits insurance companies to offer their old pre-obama care policies something the white house says will quote sabotage the law. president obama spoke about his policy reversal yesterday and how the roll out has hurt democrats, including his own presidency. >> there's no doubt that our failure to roll out the aca smoothly has put a burden on democrats. i feel deeply responsible for making it harder for them rather than easier for them to continue to promote the core values that i think led them to support this thing in the first place. i think it is not possible for me to guarantee that 100% of the people, 100% of the time going on this website
years of the obama presidency the senate held votes to end filibuster 79 times. that's already more than double the amount during president bush's eight years in office. the senate can now end the debate on executive and judicial nominees. there have been many blocks with a simple majority. however the new route does not apply to supreme court nominations or legislative bills. so it's fairly focused. while the move helps the democrats right now, that may come back to haunt them because they won't always be the case. yesterday majority leader harry reid and minority leader mitch mcconnell debated the merits of the vote. >> for the good of the united states of america. it's time to change. it's time to change the senate before this institution becomes obsolete. you don't have to like the laws of the land. but you do have to respect those laws. and acknowledge them and abide by them. is the senate working now? can anyone say the senate is working now? i don't think so. >> i realize this sort of wishful thinking may appeal to the newcomers in the democratic congress who served zero days in t
americans feel about president obama one year after re-election. the pew research center finds a majority now disapproves of the way the president is doing his job. just 41% view the president favorably. that's down 14 points from last december. that's similar to his predecessor, george w. bush, the same time during his presidency. presidents reagan and clinton both saw their approval ratings significantly higher during the first year of their second term. the survey also found a majority of americans disagree with the way president obama is handling a number of issues. 65% disprove on the economy. 60% on immigration. 59% on health care. and 56% on foreign policy. >> look at these numbers, keep them up on the screen right now, obviously those are numbers nobody would have expected a year ago. there are problems with the health care rollout. we understand that. but why do you have such upsidedown numbers on the economy? >> you know, looking at these numbers for the first time this morning it's a little bit baffling to me. you would have expected i would have thought for the health care num
's the truth. you know what hit me yesterday is that there is a similarity between barak obama's health care, which is obviously his defining moment in his presidency and george bush's war in iraq. the american people feel deceived. a failure. >> forget motionvation. >> i really want to, come on, they both will. >> former president bill clinton is wadeing into the health care debate saying president obama should stick by his now infamous pledge that if you like your plan, you can keep it. >> i personally believe even if it takes a change in the law the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people. >> white house secretary jay carney was asked if the president agrees with clinton's remarks right up there. >> i think as you saw the president say in an interview with nbc last week the answer is yes, the president has asked his team looking at a range of option to make sure nobody is in a position where their plans have been cancelled and they can't afford a better plan even though they would like a better plan . president clinton understood that governing in
's not gracious. >> no. >> if you win by like 800 points in a state that barack obama won by 800 points, you take a look at that, don't you, nicole? >> absolutely. >> you congratulate him and say wow he's a contender. >> you all said that chris christie wasn't wallowing in it. marco rubio, you would say to him be gracious. it's the day after. >> you would at least be as gracious as the democrats. i don't know when as a party we'll wake up and realize that as long as the targets of our ire remain each other. >> seriously, if you think that he's a contender the best thing you ought to do is support him. because if you say things like this it shows you're really threatened. >> so, what there's more. it wasn't just marco >> no. senator ted cruz. them. i think it's terrific that the ones ruining the republican party -- i think it's terrific he's brass, that he is outspoken, and that he won his race. but i think we need more leaders in washington with the courage to stand for principle and in particular obama care is not working. wait. >> what happened? >> he doesn't stand on principle. he basically ha
it was interesting timing. all of a sudden the discussion left obama care. >> there's this culture of extensions that he's now defining him. you extend the deadlines on obama care, the iran deal is a six month extension. the budget deal is all about kicking the can down the road. we're pushing everything further down the road. nothing is getting done. >> while you push the can down the road i want to ask sam about this. sequestration really cut into a lot of things over the past month. it's going to be even more cutting as we proceed without any budget deal. so, sam, right now, you got 535 members of congress, house and senate, they are home. they are talking to people who, many of whom have been damaged by sequestration. we don't fwakt a lot and it's hard to visualize on tv that relies on pictures but badly damaged a lot of people. what are the prospects for this kicking in and even cutting further and more deeply into people's lives? >> problems aspects are pretty strong. i talked to a medical researcher about this for one of my pieces and he called sequestration a cancerous tumor. it gets wor
changing it. >> they want president obama to admit to military mistakes only then would hamid karzai drop his staunch to raids on afghan vigils an homes. sam stein, if the afghan government would collapse, bake amy, there is no leaving. 2024 isn't even realistic. >> yeah, this is a real bind, obviously, for the administration. it's one talked about on the show ad nauseum almost by is do you pull out entirely in how much is too long? how many forces is too little forces. 7,000 strikes me as inefficient if there were to be a collapse and the country would be overrun. at the same time, there is very little to no political extension for even this. so the administration is trying to thread a needle here figuring out what can be sufficient to stop re-emerging threats and a lengthy deployment. >> doing the math on these, october of 2001, we went into afghanistan. now, we're looking at 2024. a quarter of a century almost. you talk about vietnam the length of that war. a helicopter leaves in 1975. that's ten years. the length of the war and something for put president to think about. there is no s

this from someone very close to president obama. this is more of the dividing up by demographic, by the obama administration and micro targeting policies and messages. there's another side to his comments. there's a belief among many people in my party this is how the obama administration divided the electorate to win successfully two times. there's also a feeling to be a little critical of someone i know who has a lot of respect from both sides of the aisle but there's a sense among the republicans this is how the obama administration governs. this is how they talk behind closed doors. >> the republicans didn't do that? >> the republicans were not talking about white moms. president obama's secretary of education was. >> by the way he'll be with us on "morning joe" on thursday. >> come in, nicole talk to him. coming up on "morning joe," congressman jim clyburn joins. chuck todd. michael haney as well here with "gq" men's year of the issue. up next top stories on the political playbook. bill karins has a look at the weather. >> do you see these bird's eye pictures from washingto
of cash. >> unbelievable. >>> we are going to move on now to president obama. this is obviously, i think, probably what should have gone first, but i was happy to do the toronto mayor. this is rough. president obama says he is sorry for promising americans if they like their insurance plan, they would be able to keep their coverage under the affordable care act. he sat down yesterday with nbcs chuck todd. >> i meant what i said and we worked hard to try to make sure we implemented it properly. obviously, we didn't do a good enough job and i regret that. >> do you feel like you owe them an apology? they feel misled. you have seen the anger out there. >> i regret, very much, that what we intended to do, which was to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want them, as opposed to because they are forced into it, that, you know, we weren't as clear as we needed to be in terms of the changes that were taking place. even though it's a small percentage of folks who are disadvantaged, it mean as lot to them and is scary to them. i am sorry that they, you know, are find
enrolled in obama care and for the white house the numbers are terrible. the "wall street journal" reports that so far around 50,000 people have signed up for private coverage or medicaid through the government website and in oregon one of the states running their own exchanges not a single person has enrolled. obama administration officials were hoping to sign up at least 500,000 people in the move october. and additional reports say the white house is hoping to boost coverage by looking at individuals who signed up but have not sent in their first payment. tissues with have prevented tens of thousands love income americans from successfully signing up for medicaid. there are some states that are not allowing that. later today the websites chief digital architect will tell congressional leaders he had no idea initial tests of the website had security flaws that could lead to identity theft. >> ron, you've been covering this up close. it's staggering whether you talk about possibility of identity theft. it doesn't matter what part of it is, it's been botched. there will be

"the wall street journal" was clear. calling it a triumph for iran. late saturday president obama announced an interim deal with tehran. the product of months of secret meetings. the plan requires that iran phase out its high grade uranium. the country cannot increase lower grade uranium stockpile or add more centrifuges. and it must submit to daily inspections. in return, iran would get modest relief from crippling u.s. sanctions. >> these are substantial limitations which will help prevent iran from building a nuclear weapon. simply put, they cut off iran's most likely paths to a bomb. the broader architecture of sanctions will remain in place and we will continue to enforce them vigorously. and if iran does not fully meet its commitments during this six month phase, we will turn off the relief
